Like I posted the other day, some people see the Atlanta snow/ice debacle has a catalyst for change.
And it’s nice to see the mainstream media (CNN) report this:
“But the problem highlights how Atlanta and cities like it depend almost exclusively on cars. Atlanta does have a commuter train system, but it doesn’t serve the whole metro area.
While the city has a workday population of 1 million, the metro area’s population is 6 million.
And when offices and schools let out Tuesday, the masses got into their cars to head to the suburbs. An expansive public transportation system would have undoubtedly alleviated some of the ensuing traffic stress.”
It usually takes something serious happening before we see the light.
